`Their Eyes Are Watching You'

Starting Monday, Goucher College will present Their Eyes Are Watching You, a mixed-media exhibit featuring unconventional works from three artists.

Heather Boaz filmed people and asked them to tell her when they think a minute of taping had passed. She went back and added a clock to the footage, slowing down or speeding it up depending on the subject's perception of time. Rick Delaney's installation explores the environment of watching a home movie. Clyde Forth dressed up in costumes and performed short sketches in front of video surveillance cameras. She later asked the companies that owned the cameras for copies of the tapes and obtained them. The short films will be on loop as part of the exhibit.

"It's about surveillance but it's not, really," said Jess Bowers, the college's media relations coordinator. "It's more about artists using surveillance tools and equipment and concepts to express their own thoughts about memory and time and place."

Their Eyes Are Watching You opens Monday and runs through Oct. 22 at Goucher College's Kraushaar Auditorium. There will be a reception 6 p.m.-8 p.m. Sept. 14. Hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays-Fridays and during events at the auditorium. The college is at 1021 Dulaney Valley Road in Towson. Call 410-337-6333 or visit
